The other day I came across a series of colour photographs that I made in the spring 2016.
I have the habit of being incredibly critical of my own work when I first see it, so these photographs have been archived for the last 4 and a half years.
Seeing these photos again I feel not so critical of them. So have been posting them for last few days. Just raw scans, not much editing done.
My switch to using colour film at the time was inspired by the large format colour work of Joel Meyerowitz. @joel_meyerowitz Particularly his photographs from Cape Light.
This photo of Griffin Automotive was taken at sunset just down the road from my house. I’ve always liked the building and would see the sun hitting it on my walk home from work. There is a small window of time in which the sun peeks through the building across the street and the elevated highway that is on the left.
A few years after this was taken, artist Christopher Griffin @griffinartstudio (not affiliated with the garage) created one of his graffiti transformations on the right side of the building.
